Public sector audit

Oversight of the public sector is an important and often overlooked pillar of the public expenditure function. As independent public bodies responsible for monitoring the use of public funds, Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) ensure oversight, transparency and accountability of public sector spending. They play a fundamental role in efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as key drivers of good governance. Cowater has strengthened the organizational capacity of public sector audit institutions around the world, including more than 25 SAIs.

Our own Audit Management Software, Audit360TM, is deployed in several countries worldwide and has received acclamation from the World Bank for its appropriate application and functionality for public bodies. Learn more about Cowater’s software solution here.
